How do I choose a plate charger?
To select the right charger plate, take into account the décor and color that has been chosen, and then consider the other dinnerware that will be placed on top of the charger plate. Choose a charger plate that will help complement the style of the room, the tabletop, the linen as well as the dinnerware.
What is the difference between a charger and a platter?
A charger plate is usually larger than a dinner plate but smaller than a food-serving platter. As it need not hold food, it can be made out of a wider range of materials than regular dishes. In addition to standard china, chargers are made of metal, wood, glass, plastic, mother of pearl, and even leather.
Are charger plates necessary?
Charger plates are an essential element of fine dining, but should not be used to serve food. At formal dining events, charger plates play a supporting role – catching spills and helping hot dishes, such as soup, retain heat. When choosing charger plates, consider both your theme and number of guests.
Can you put food on a charger plate?
Chargers may come in all different materials, both formal or informal, and can be used to protect tables from heat and condensation of plates, or can simply be decorative. Food should never be placed directly on a charger, and instead only on plates.
Do you remove charger before eating?
In essence, if a charger is used throughout dinner, it will remain on the table and is only removed before the dessert is served. The charger may also be used solely for the purpose of decorating the place setting visually for guests, and then, it may be removed prior to the first course being served.
